Finally we have some great news about The Woman In The House, which Tom finished filming earlier this year. According to Deadline, the limited series will stream on Netflix, early 2022. Deadline also announced another lead actor for The Woman In The House. Along with Kristen Bell as Anna, and Tom Riley as Neil, Michael Ealy will co-star as Douglas. Read more on the Deadline website.
Michael Ealy is set as a lead opposite Kristen Bell and Tom Riley in Netflix’s eight-episode limited series The Woman in the House, from Gloria Sanchez Productions (Dead To Me, Hustlers). The series is expected to premiere in early 2022.
Created by Rachel Ramras, Hugh Davidson and Larry Dorf, who also serve as co-showrunners, The Woman In The House centers around heartbroken Anna (Bell), for whom every day is the same. She sits with her wine, staring out the window, watching life go by without her. But when a handsome neighbor (Riley) and his adorable daughter (Samsara Yett) move in across the street, Anna starts to see a light at the end of the tunnel. That is until she witnesses a gruesome murder… Or did she?
Ealy will play Douglas, Anna’s ex-husband. Bookish and pragmatic, he still has love for Anna but their past keeps them from imagining a future together.
Mary Holland, Shelley Hennig, Cameron Britton, Christina Anthony and Benjamin Levy Aguilar also co-star opposite Bell, who executive-produces the limited series alongside Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum and Brittney Segal for Gloria Sanchez Productions.
Tom Riley is currently filming The Nevers in London for HBO, which will hopefully also air in 2022. Tom shared the above photo this week on Instagram.
Lizzy Caplan, Tom's wife, has been promoting her animated series Inside Job which is now streaming on Netflix, and mentioned Tom a couple of times in interviews. She revealed that Tom loves to listen to movie scores when preparing for roles.
